VIEW IN MY ROOM
A piece from my Islands collection - inspired by reflections of my place of birth, the Philippines. Comprised of over 7600 islands and 180+ dialects, it is a place that, for me personally, imbues mixed feelings of wonder, comfort, social cultural perplexity, beauty and mystery. I left this homeland before turning 1yrs old and have returned three times since. My paintings reflect my studies and memories of the colors, sounds, flavours and energy of this special place, my home away from home..

Our family home was always filled with art and handicrafts made by the local artisans of each new city we migrated to. Folk art, paintings, wooden sculptures, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, and various curios all served to ignite my imagination. I’m interested in tradition, symbolism, language, and the ever-changing symbiosis of communities and nature. My work is an eclectic concoction formed from memories of the vibrant sights, scents, flavors, rituals, stories and people I’ve encountered. The nostalgia of a tropical climate is a constant undercurrent in my process. I treat each canvas with an intuitive approach, never pre-planned. I allow each brush stroke to lead into the next, and each layer to form upon the other, playfully obscuring where lines begin and end. I aim to create harmonious frictions with bold color and contrast between hues, mixed media, shapes, and patterns that overlap and eventually resolve themselves within the composition. The imagery I create is my interpretation of our complex, multi-layered human experience in both our interconnectedness to one another and to our environment.
